for many, many months that this was going to occur. president obama has submitted proposals on three different occasions. a balanced approach. when the supercommittee was meeting back in the fall of 2011 and his own budget submission and last fall as part of the fiscal debate challenges, he's put office on the table to the congressional republicans who simply refuse to close corporate loopholes and to force the wealthiest americans to pay their fair share. we've had over $2.5 trillion in savings and cuts. we cannot cut our way to prosperity. we need a balanced approach and that's what the president has told the republicans. >> when she says balanced approach, alex, she means more taxes, higher taxes for wealthy americans and for big corporations. what's wrong with that? >> close loopholes. >> what's wrong with that is that washington is telling us that if we cut a single penny, then the national parks are going to close, as if the grand canyon was going to stop being a hole in the ground without federal funding. this is outrageous. the people who are supposed to serve us are telling
the nation's security would be compromised by the sequester cuts. is that true? president obama's undersecretary of defense says prudent cuts are necessary and comparable. and we'll talk about using drone strikes to kill traitorrous citizens overseas. "the kudlow report" begins right now. >> first up president obama is starting to feel the heat. republicans are less and less likely to give in to his demand to raise taxes and they are publicly presenting a united front over impending budget cuts. that means sequester, which was obama's idea. it's going to happen. but listen to how the president attacked republicans today. >> they recognize that the sequester is a bad idea, but what they have suggested is the only way to replace it now is for us to cut social security, cut medicare and not close a single loophole, not raise any additional revenue from the wealthiest americans or corporations. >> there you go. additional revenue. joining me, robert costa. i was at the heritage foundation's seminar today for new and old congressional members. the vibe i picked up is, a, no new taxes

of president obama disbanding his jobs council, a group of business leaders who advised him on the economy. republicans were quick to seize on the news, scoffing at the white house's handling of the council and the economy overall. >> if the white house spent nearly as much time trying to actually fix the economy as it did claiming it was fixed and then finding excuses and sca scape goats when its premature announcements were false i suspected the economy would be better than it is doing here today. >> christine romans, is he right? the unemployment rate is still what, 7.9% now. >> yes, 7.9%, 157,000 jobs created in january. that's modest hiring. that is an economy that is healing still slowly but carol when you look at the end of the year, we had some revisions to the jobs creation in november and december. i want to show you the end of the year, things look stronger than we thought at the end of the year so hiring was picking up in november and december. hiring picking up enough, carol, to actually eat into the number of people who are out there still looking in the wake of the recession

white house correspondent jessica yellin is reporting that the obama administration has approached a number of elected officials about taking the job. but so far they have declined that job. >>> so if you've been watching cable tv, there's a pretty good chance that you've seen a case about a young woman named jodi arias who is accused of killing her ex-boyfriend travis alexander. look, it's not your garden variety murder. there are plenty of murders out there. but this one caught a lot of eyes. first of all, he's a lot bigger than than she is and apparently the death was caused not only from the shot of a .25 caliber gun, but 27 stab wounds and his throat being slit from ear to ear, and this is the woman they are talking about, and there are photographs that had a whole other side of jodi arias. arias' defense is self defense. that's what she said. she said this was a tough relationship, that he was a sex maniac that threatened her with bodily harm, but a bullet casing and camera may tell a different story in the courtroom. and then there are the lies, one after the other that this

the country together, who's taking a partisan approach. president obama does okay on that score. he's 48% of the country say he's trying to bring the country together. 43% say he's taking a partisan approach. but republicans get hammered by the public. only 22% credit republicans with trying to bring the country together. three times that many just about, 64%, say they're driving the country apart -- in a partisan way. and when you look at the issues at stake, each side has some advantages. but -- from the democratic point of view, looking out for the middle class, 22% advantage for the democrats. on the issue of taxes which is traditionally a republican strength, democrats have a small advantage plus 3%. republicans on the flip side, who would do better at protecting a strong defense? 26% advantage for republicans. who'd do better at reducing the deficit? 6% advantage for republicans. so each side brings strengths to this issue. but president obama clearly has the high ground in terms of the bully pulpit and trying to put pressure on republicans. he hasn't been able to put enough pressu
